Shadow Ochoa is lying low in the Kansas Territory, waiting for his fellow Texas Rangers—the Hell's Eight brotherhood—to clear his name. That is, until he's unjustly strung up for horse thieving... and pretty Fei Yen intervenes. Invoking a seldomused law, the exotic lady prospector claims Shadow as her husband and rides off with the bridegroom shackled to her buckboard.
Savvy, fearless Fei is singlemindedly devoted to her hidden claim and all it promises: wealth, security and freedom. A husband is just a necessary inconvenience and a name on paper to hold the claim she cannot.
Shadow isn't a man to take orders from anyone, especially from lovely Fei—except the friction between them ignites into nightly blazes of allconsuming passion. Soon Shadow is dreaming a little himself: of the life they could have if Fei could see past the lure of independence. If bounty hunters weren't closing in on him. If he's left standing when the impending showdown has ended....

The Story line was not as good as the previous books. It seems that the author is not as invested in the series as she was before. I am not sure if I will continue with the series.
I loved this book and Shadow and Faye and WOW! Sadly this is the first book I've read of the "Hell's Eight" series...now I've got to go and start from the beginning...I hope the first four books are as good as this one....
I was intrigued by the story, it was a little short I thought But overall a good listen. I read the first book and decided I didn't really want to read them in order so I picked up this one, and it was a good choice if you read Cain's Reckoning and get a feel for the characters you can pick up this book and not feel lost.
YES! It is a good series to listen too
Sarah McCarty ... get busy on more like these.....
Part time daycare worker and mom to three children. I love to read romance & paranormal of any kind!!
I love the men of hells 8 and how they stick together no matter what the cost maybe!
When Shadow realizes he has been pushing the people he loves away.
Can't wait for the next one!!
I love hells eight and was anxiously awaiting the next story in this series. Shadow's story was sweet and touching. I wish she would have gave us a better understanding of how Shadow escaped the shackles and handcuffs of the US Army but it's ok the story was still great. If you have not heard the other stories do yourself a favor and listen to them starting with Caines story.
The narrator to me did not do Shadow or Fei ANY justice. I like this narrator in other books but she was not good with this story. I really wish that they would have used any of the narrators from the previous stories, I would had even accepted the one from Sams Creed.
Please use one of the other narrators for the next book.
I read so I can write
I have listened to the four books of this series twice. It is a great series and I'm looking forward to the next ones. My only suggestion that would make it better is if Savannah Richards is the narrator for all. She is the best of those who did these four books and keeping the same narrator and therefore the same voices for the characters makes them more real.
I love the way that this story line flowed, keeping my attention and interest, I listened to it without interruption, in one sitting. The characters are well defined although, there were times I thought Shadow was dumb and unconnected to Fey,
I would recommend this book, and the entire series in fact. All is well worth the credit.
I've enjoyed Savannah Richards' narration in a number of books and she never fails to do an excellent job in defining each character significantly.
